Best current-gen fighting games

GR: We’re going to start things off with a disclaimer: this is not a list of the greatest fighting games of all time. If you’re hoping for a list of the all-time best fighters, you’ll have to hold your horses – that’s a whole ‘nother list we’ve got cooking in the kitchen. Trust us, the debates over that list will be most heated indeed. Some real-life fights may or may not break out.

Instead, this is a list of the best fighting games that you can buy right now. As in, hop onto XBLA, PSN, or dip into a brick-and-morter store, purchase, and play without delay. Zero emulation, arcade proximity, or inflated eBay prices required. These fighters are this generation’s best, evoking everything we love about ‘90s brawlers and modernizing them with spiffy high-resolution graphics, online capabilities, and greatly improved user-friendliness. Whether you’re reviving your love for old favorites or diving into the fighting game community for the first time, you can’t go wrong with these modern-day classics. (Mortal Kombat, Nintendo DS, PC, PS3, PSP, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, Wii, Xbox 360)

The King of Fighters XIII > all.

Soul Calibur V is second best? that's outrageously ignorant.

with all the various fighting game favorites, I think we should just fight each other to see who's the best!

SSF4:AE for me!

meh, too many games on this list. Brawl, King of Fighters, Tekken, and Blaze Blue are the only ones worth mentioning out of these titles. Where id Dead or Alive, Guilty Gear, or AquaPazza: AquaPlus Dream Match? WHy does this list have soul caliber 5 instead of 4? MvC3 over Tatsunoko vs capcom, really? Mortal Combat has ALWAYS been terrible! Take it off. Current gen can include international titles as well. Non localized titles are usually the hidden gems.

Blazblue is my fave fighting game this gen. Having it on the Vita is like a godsend. SNK redeemed themselves with KOF 13 which is an excellent game. I really enjoyed Arcana Hearts 3 for its over the top moves & silliness.

Never a big fan of the Capcom fighting games this gen. Strange cause i loved Street Fighter up to the Alpha series & Marvel vs. Capcom 2 is the best collaboration fighter ever!

MK is the best hands down even though capcom dickriders wont admit it

Blaz Blu, MK, UMvC3, SF X T.. Thats it for me.. i never tried skull chicks before but it got good feedback

MK is great. I went out of my way to buy that game. I can't say I enjoy playing other people online as much, but it is still a great game.

I couldn't bring myself to buy any Capcom fighting games due to their constant newer version release b.s. they pull every few months.
